8-point lead in the Pan-American Games Trials
HWCS Miami was the first event in a two-regatta trials for the Pan-American Games, and we currently lead the next American team (Paris Henken and Anna Tunnicliffe Tobias) by eight points. The American team with the lowest combined score from the events in Miami and Palma will represent Team USA at the Pan-Am Games. The sailing events will take place in Paracas, Peru on August 3-10, 2019. We look forward to defending our lead in Palma de Mallorca, Spain next week.
The Pan-American Games will be the North American continental qualifier for the Olympics, which means the top placing North American country will earn a berth (for the country, not the individual sailors) at the Olympics. Read more about the Pan-Am Games Selection process and event here.
